would actually be there. but what happens is that because for example, u.s.a.i.d.-- again an organization that has a lot of good will in it-- it also moves with the political agendas of the united states government and so project... projects or assignments or those that are applied for by n.g.o.s become limited to those things which go straight along with the u.s. agenda. so these are the kind of things that have to be thought out very very clearly. one of the kind of no-brainers in things where i would encourage people to put money is in rubble clearing. >> this is jean baptist and this was one of the main streets. this is the area we're working on clearing now. >> this corner, people stay here like late at night. they're having fun here, there was a t.v. here, there was water here, but most of the people used to hang out here. >> so this was like the town square. >> exactly. >> rose: time after time when ski people about haiti, that's what they say, you need to get rid of the rubble. >> you'll do no harm by clearing the streets to let the haitian people make their own co

you say? the u.s. national debt now at unsustainable levels. even the cbo says that. one democrat is suggesting a brand new plan. it's a new transaction tax that would impose a 1 percent fee on every single solitary financial transaction except for stocks. so whether you buy a couple of coffee or a brand new car, you're going to pay a little extra to the u.s. government, and even taking your own money out of your own bank account at an atm could cost you, that's right, 1 percent more under this new law. martha: this may sound strikingly similar to the vat tax used in england and other countries and it cost them a lot of money. is that what's coming here? stuart varney joins us, he's the anchor of varney & company on the fox business network. stuart, welcome, good to have you here. this idea was launched by a democratic congressman from pennsylvania and written about by lanny davis in an editorial. lanny davis worked wither skin bowles in the clinton administration. it raises the question are we starting to get the form from this debt commission, are they starting to float out ther
